One of the most dark and brilliant satiric films of the last century, “Dr. Strangelove Or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love The Bomb”  was my introduction to the cinematic genius of Stanley Kubrick. The only film of that era which even comes close (in terms of war satire) is probably Mike Nichols’ “Catch-22″  (his “The Graduate” wasn’t bad either – ‘plastics’).
An absolute tour de force from Peter Sellers in three roles, the supporting cast is brilliant as well, particularly George C. Scott as Gen. ‘Buck’ Turgidson and Sterling Hayden as the barking mad Gen. Jack D. Ripper. ‘Dr. Strangelove’ belongs in any serious film fan’s library!
